Yes, YOU do make a difference

When you dare to follow your beliefs and take personal responsibility for your own life – you impact everyone around you. That kind of positive personal leadership has a ripple effect that changes the world. That’s how communities, companies, and entire countries are transformed. Entire industries have been created by one person who dared to take personal leadership. This is why the greatest men and women throughout time are remembered in history books. The fact is, you can, do, and will make a difference. All that remains to be answered is, ‘What difference do you want to make?’ That’s the Power of ONE! That’s the Power of You!

Against the storm!
Rising above it! How to take personal leadership when life flips you upside down or throws you into change. (Courage to Lead!)

Life happens in the midst of our plans! We need to stop, change pace, and refocus our energies on a regular basis. We need to effectively handle the changes and challenges that rise up, such a business reversal, a drought, unexpected storm, or the after-effects of 9-11. Bob toured ground zero shortly after that disaster. Bob sailed through a 'baby' typhoon off the coast of Japan and battled unforgiving seas for his life to attain a safe harbor in Kobe. This high impact session challenges you to change direction, as needed, and apply personal leadership to overcome the storms and challenges in your life, career, or organization.

"On very short notice Bob cleared his schedule and graciously presented at our meeting when the original Speaker was unable to attend. Last week Bob set the tone for our two-day leadership meeting and gave us all a motivational lift.

His compassion and true interest in people was clearly evident, making him very credible. He shared some great stories, has a wealth of experience and knowledge and it was a pleasure listening to him.

His down-to-Earth style makes it easier to retain the information presented. He also followed up with additional info and handouts, cementing his message of building bridges, not walls. Fantastic job, Bob, and thanks again!"
Barbara Afra Beler, MBA, Senior Specialist Commercial Community, Alberta North, BMO Bank of Montreal

Your presentation at our Penticton conference was very entertaining, and has sparked some very thoughtful reactions among our contractors - exactly the type of response we were looking for.

Thanks again
